The plot of Darth Paper…

If you saw the unofficial trailer made by SuperLibrarian Kelly, then you may have strained your eyes trying to read the “opening crawl.”
And if you read it you may have wondered — as one commenter did — whether that was the real plot of the book.

Yes it is! And here it is in an uncrawling version:

It is a dark time at Ralph McQuarrie Middle School.

After suffering several Origami Yoda–related humiliations, Harvey manages to get Dwight suspended from school for being a “troublemaker.”

Origami Yoda pleads with Tommy and Kellen to save Dwight by making a new case file—one that will show how Dwight’s presence benefits McQuarrie. With the help of their friends, Tommy and Kellen record cases such as “Origami Yoda and the Pre-eaten Wiener,” “Origami Yoda and the Exploding Pizza Bagels,” and “Origami Yoda and Wonderland: The Musical.”

But Harvey and his Darth Paper puppet have a secret plan that could make Dwight’s suspension permanent . . .

Darth Paper Strikes Back unofficial teaser trailer

SuperLibrarian Kelly made this teaser trailer for Darth Paper! Enjoy:

SuperFolders’ Random Stuff Discussion Page…

Superfolder Lonefish Josh suggested a page where you superfolder could talk about stuff other than Yoda (and Dwight and Darth Paper).

Well, this can be the place. Go ahead and talk about whatever you want in the comments of this page….

BUT BE NICE!!!!

I’ll delete any Harvey-type talk and, if there’s too much of it, I’ll have to delete this whole page. There are too many Harveys on the Internet and I don’t want to encourage them to hang out here.

Also, this is not an appropriate place to talk about politics or religion. SERIOUSLY!!

Do you think we need a better name than SuperFolders’ Random Stuff Discussion Page…If you come up with a better name, I’ll change the title of this page…

New cover Yoda by SuperFolder CYM

Wow! Here’s a new Cover Yoda that looks like the real thing!

Great job SuperFolder CYM!
(that’s Cover Yoda Master)

Here are his instructions for making the robe…. (I’m afraid one picture got out of order…. sorry!–Webmaster Sam)

fold in half

fold top corners in, but not too close to the middle
P.S it helps to pinch the centre of the rectangle

unfold corners and then fold corners to crease mark

Now fold it all in

for added effect,
turn over fold bottom corners in like so…

Now wrap around deluxe yoda…

Origami Chewbacca instructions from SuperFolder BenR

Here you go, guys! BenR has made instructions for you.

Not that this is technically Kirigami. BenR very cleverly included a small tear which makes Chewbacca’s lips. It’s not cheating, it’s being creative!

Darth Peepy? With guest star @lisayee!

The greatest honor a writer can receive is for Lisa Yee — author of Millicent Min, Warp Speed and other awesome books — to take a picture of them with her stuffed peep, Peepy!

Well, I came close…. Lisa Yee stopped by the Abrams booth at Book Expo and got a picture of Peepy with Darth Paper!!!!!

Have you checked out her new book Warp Speed yet? It’s about a Star Trek fan!

First celebrity judge confirmed! You wont believe it!

I promised you celebrity judges for the Darth Paper contest, but I had no idea I would be able to get this man of mystery…..

Yes! It’s the one and only Van Jahnke!!!

I still haven’t communicated with him directly, but while in NYC for Book Expo I met with the person who is my contact with Van Jahnke. I asked her if she thought he would be a judge for us The next day she told me Van Jahnke would do it!

I’m not ignoring anybody, but may have missed your emails due to snafu…

Hey SuperFolders,

I recently made a change to the way I get my email and I’m not sure it was working so good. I’ve changed it back — I hope — and I’m REALLY SORRY if I missed any emails from any of you over the past week or so.
If you don’t mind, you can resend them to tom@origamiyoda.com

Thanks!

Origami Yoda and Darth Paper quality control… #bea11

Here’s a new tub full! These are new ones, not the ones from the earlier Bucket of Vaders. Whew, that’s a lot of work!

But even when I’m folding many at once, I have to make sure that each one is perfect. Let’s check a couple….

Looks good to me!
